REFLECT by Jean Nouvel

In September, storied French architecture meets time-honored Danish design tradition: Reform presents REFLECT – a new design, tight and minimalist, yet characteristically stunning, enduring kitchen created in collaboration with one of contemporary architecture’s most respected and celebrated figures: Jean Nouvel.

Harboring a timeless, understated extravagance with an iconic Art Deco feel, REFLECT by the acclaimed French architect comes with his lauded talent for conceptualizing light through a reflective, monochrome design available in black and untreated metal, featuring vertical ridges. The new design by Jean Nouvel will be available at Reform’s international range of showrooms and on its website from September 2021.

Conceptualizing light through material and reflection
Jean Nouvel applies his characteristic ability for telling stories and evoking imagery through design. REFLECT sees one of the most influential architects of the modern era bridging the scale from architecture to kitchen design while channeling his prize- winning creativity into a kitchen designed to be functional, durable, and iconic. Made from sturdy stainless steel imbued with vertical ridges, the monochrome kitchen fronts are available in black and metal with a high gloss, reflective surface, adding Jean Nouvel’s signature experimentation with light and atmosphere to the kitchen’s surroundings.

“The grooves in the material that the kitchen fronts consist of give it a silent, yet a clear characteristic expression. The grooves in the shiny metal reflect and throw the light in a playful way” is what impresses Reform-founder and CEO Jeppe Christensen about this new design.

Along with a handle made of anodized aluminum, the countertops, recommended for this kitchen design, come in stainless steel and Fenix laminate in either gray and black to compliment and accentuate the charming reflectivity, created by the design’s radiant aesthetic.

When outstanding French architecture meets Scandinavian design perspective
Jean Nouvel and Reform occupy different ends of the design spectrum. Where Jean Nouvel concerns himself with creating ‘visual landscapes’, Reform is dedicated to delivering extraordinary, yet accessible kitchen design. What the two parties have in common, however, is empathy with their audiences – a deep-seated need to create pleasant environments where human beings are stimulated and feel at ease. This kitchen is the manifestation of those similar sensibilities converging in a lasting design with a vibrant and inviting atmosphere.
